12.1 Mid Summer Tea Party Sat 23 Jun. Cllr Bottomley reported that he had received a note of from the event organisers, Robert & Elizabeth East, thanking everyone for their support and help in making Saturday’s tea party a success and on the day £540 was taken. A special thank you to all who produced cakes and cupcakes for the refreshments and to those who decorated the church. The auctioning of the Tandem Parachute jump boosted the takings considerably. Some thoughts for the future: Day: Saturday is not a good day for families whose children are involved in sporting activities and it is difficult for them to take part. Perhaps consider a Sunday instead. Duration: the time of the party was extended (2.00 to 5.00) to try and get more out of it for the effort put in. With hindsight this did not work well and 3.00 to 5.00 should adequate as before.
